The Pioneer Woman Just Revealed The Meaning Of Her Silver Bracelet

Whether or not you're a Food Network fan, you've probably heard of The Pioneer Woman by now. The show features Ree Drummond, a blogger-turned TV-show personality who has hosted an incredible 26 seasons. Drummond is a "sassy former city girl" who shares her cooking tips and tricks against her "home on the range" lifestyle with "her hunky rancher husband" and "band of adorable kids" (via Food Network).

If you watch the show often, you've probably noticed her signature silver bangle. According to the Pioneer Woman website, Drummond participated in a Q&A while on tour for her book Frontier Follies, and gave some insight into her ever-present accessory, pictured on Instagram. "I never take this off, and it's a bangle that says, 'Lord make me an instrument of thy peace.' It's the first line" of the Prayer of St. Francis, she explained. "I've worn it for probably 10 to 12 years, but it always reminds me that making peace is never a bad idea. So no matter what's going on, if I get little glimpses of it throughout the day, it's a good reminder."

Unfortunately, if you have a big-time Pioneer Woman fan on your Christmas list and are hoping to surprise them with a replica, you're out of luck. The exact James Avery bracelet has been discontinued, but similar ones are still available. On the other hand, what would be more Pioneer Woman-inspired than making (or baking) your loved one a handmade gift?

Hosting ideas for fans of the Pioneer Woman

Nothing says "I actually put some effort into this gift" like a dessert with a lot of love mixed in. The Pioneer Woman's Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie recipe, found at Food Network, should do just the trick for those special people in your life, with an Oreo crust and a filling made from cream cheese, powdered sugar, and thawed whipped topping (yum, yum, and yum!). The end-result is so rich it comes with a warning: "Cut small slivers — your guests will thank you!"

If you're more confident behind the stick than the stove, there are also a number of Pioneer Woman cocktails you can explore. Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails, also at Food Network, have a mere four ingredients, and only take five minutes to make. The directions are: "Place 1 teaspoon pomegranate seeds in the bottom of 6 Champagne glasses. Fill halfway with pomegranate juice and top up with cold Champagne. Garnish with the mint sprigs." The result is six Instagram-worthy cocktails that can be divided among six people, or however you like to do the math.
